I think this will be the first year that Forest of fun has been open for Christmas Town, too.

Believe it or not it's Tempesto! That's actually pretty awesome news. The Grover coaster is open too along with Verbolten as always.


I would so go back down if they had the B&Ms open. Come on BGW, be like Six Flags.

No no actually don't... but maybe just a tiny little bit.

By the way I just realized that the indoor, temperature controlled Dark Ride isn't open for this event. :lol: What the hell? I mean... I get it, it's not a family friendly ride but neither is Tempesto.

I didn't realize that the Xmas event wasn't included in any of the season pass plans.

It's a shame that they don't have all of their coasters operating. I'm sure they can all run fine in cold temperatures.

Dollywood has no issues running all of their coasters, I don't think Arrows have a temperature limit so Loch Ness Monster would probably be fine and Great Adventure has blown any theories about low temperatures and B&M's to hell. Hell even if they did just what Dollywood does and require 40 degrees to start them and close them at 36 that's way below the average daily temperature in Williamsburg. They would probably close early some nights but the park is open from 2 to 10 during the event so they can run most of the day and at night most people will be focused on lights anyway.

Like Hershey, they're stepping up their game a little bit at a time though so that's a good sign. Hopefully increased competition causes more and more parks to run coasters in December.

Starting a petition for a Curse of the DarKastle Christmas overlay? A very Prince Ludwig Christmas? KristmasKastle?

Yeah that's totally wack Curse of Darkastle is closed.

Seriously though heading down there for a long weekend in December, getting a hotel in Williamsburg and hitting the park a few days during their Xmas event sounds like it would be absolutely amazing....






























If the B&Ms were running. :lol:

This would be the best Christmas park ever if they ran all of the coasters. I'm sure their seasonal beer collection is out of this world and there's nothing I love more than cold weather drinking. In the summer you kind of need to drink water and stay hydrated occasionally. In the winter there's no need to waste your time with that type of bull***.

I mean, they have a freaking invert themed to a runaway ski lift. And they don't run it during a Xmas event.
